    Original Tail light removal and installed the JDM G's Tail lights: *** Do this at your own risk!!! i am not responsible or liable for any damages you may cause by repeating this tutorial****

    Preparation:
    1. Use masking tape around the outer edge of the body panel and bumper area (preventing any accidental paint scratch during the removal process)
    2. Use a pry tool to open the rear panel inside the trunk area
    3. There are 3 screw nuts holding the housing (showed in red arrows, remove the nuts by using a 12 mm wrench)
    4. Unplug the power connector from tail light
    5. Before you begin pulling the tail light, notice the 2 red circles (Left side is a Tab guide, top is fitting pin insert)
    6. The arrows are the screws which was held by the nuts you remove earlier
    When pulling the tail light:
    • Waggle the tail light side to side (with both hands on the tail light, slowly loosing the bolts, tab guide)
    • Stand close to the tail light and use your right hand to grab onto the upper portion of the tail lights between the gap of the body and tail light.
    • With your left hand holding the left outer housing, and your right hand fingers from upper tail light housing against the body panel
    • Slowly pull and push against the body panel toward you. (you will feel a pop of the tail light fitting pin separates from the upper fitting pin insert on the body panel)
    • Slide the housing toward you. (DO NOT Force it out which may damage the guide tab on the left side)
    • there are 2 gaskets on the body panel which will need to be removed and place back onto the new tail lights screws (top screw and most outer screw near the left side) ***those gaskets are for water proofing, make sure you put them back onto the new tail light***
    • Repeat the same procedure on the Right side tail lights
    Few things to watch out for when reinstalling:
    • Install the new tail light from the outer tab guide and the fitting pin/ fitting pin insert is located.
    • Check your tab guide is sliding against the tail light guide rail and pop the fitting pin into the pin insert.
    • Firmly press down the top portion of the tail light and replace the nut back onto the top screw and secure first (due to tightness of the space, you will have to be very careful when placing the nut back on)
    • Place all nuts back onto the screw and lightly secure them (do not over tighten)
    • Check the upper portion of the tail lights edge is seated inside the slope of the body panel (this step is to ensure water will run above the body panel and away from the cavity of the tail lights.
    Now enjoy the look of the new tail lights(y)(y)

    now the Tail light is JDM-ized. which one would you preferred? that Chromatised look or the stealthily look?

    Awaiting arrival of some oem parts prepping for a few minor upgrades:

    • Shark Fin: Toyota 86300-12B30-C0 (Replacing the outdated antenna on the roof)(Test trial)
    • Rear Suspension bolt replacement: Toyota SU003-05213, SU003-05235 (base on reviews i have read, the bolts add rigidity to the rear shocks and axle beam) :rolleyes: These bolts are made for rear engine mount Toyota GT86, FRS. maybe a Placebo effect, will find out soon.

    After testing the Shark Fin. FAIL!! i guess i forgot to cross reference US radio antenna which has the additional plug (for that XM radio thingy) but i was still able to install it and kept the original antenna base tie down inside the quarter panel.

    After testing: FM,AM, Navigation and phone all works. Only thing i lost is the XM radio which i do not use. Love the look of the roof line :p

    Using this link to remove the headliner and all the trims (page 1-10): lots of Japan goodies just arrived today. :D:D:D Valentine gifts for my Car.LOL
